Dim Sum & Co – Product Review
Some time ago, the lovely Tina from Dim Sum & Co. contacted me asking if I would like to try out their new range of easy-to-prepare, ready-made yum cha snacks. Dim Sum & Co. is a wonderful company that is proud to have created “a range of spring rolls, dumplings, buns and siu mai that is Australian owned and made, using fresh Australian ingredients” with no fillers or added MSG. Committed to delivering a “healthy, hearty and delicious alternative
to Asian fast food”, Dim Sum & Co. does this by “quick freezing” all their products, which preserves nutrients and freshness, giving you the convenience of storing them in your freezer until you need them.
I received three of their beautifully-packaged boxes of frozen goodies in an adorable cooler bag full of ice. These three boxes contained: (1) Pork and Asian Greens Dumplings, (2) Steamed BBQ Pork Buns, and (3) Chicken & Water Chestnut Siu Mai. Yum, yum!
Now, we sampled all of these over the course of a few months (they keep in the freezer very well), and I have to say, despite being frozen meal packs, they tasted decently fresh after heating them up. I attribute this to the cooking methods that the
instructions offer. You don’t just chuck these guys in a microwave (well, of course you can, but they’re not going to taste as impressive). There are several suggested ways of cooking each item, and I advise you not to take any shortcuts here. There was the exception of the siu mai, which came with a handy ‘microwave steam box’, which worked well for us, but we’ll get to that in a bit. Without further ado, here are my personal observations of the sampling:
